We’re sharing how we put together our party idea.
Ideas on creating a Hocus Pocus party:
Start with the colors of the Sanderson sisters. We’re using the colors of their robes and hair for our color inspiration.
Decorate with mini pumpkins. We spray painted several mini pumpkins green, orange, purple and black.
Balloon garland. If an instant pop and decor idea, having a balloon garland is essential. I love using balloon garlands for our party set-ups. This specific balloon kit included the pictured balloons, mini bats, a boo balloon, and a larger bat balloon. You will also need a balloon pump.
Themed food. For a Hocus Pocus party, having themed food is fun and can also be a decor element.
You can create a Hocus Pocus charcuterie board, have Sanderson Sister-shaped cookies, book brownies, and more.
Here are some Halloween food ideas to serve:
Halloween decor. We preferred to use various Halloween decor itemset-up for any type of Halloween get-together.
- black Rae Dunn Halloween bowls
- Rae Dunn Drink Cauldron + mugs
- Glass black + white pumpkins (Home Goods)
- Spell Book (Home Goods)
- Trick or Treat sign (Home Goods)
- 3d Bats (Kirkland’s)
- Hocus Pocus I Need To Focus candy jar (Pier 1)
- Glass Purple Bottles (Michael’s)
We included a broomstick, hung three black witches’ hats from the ceiling, a wand (Harry Potter), and Sanderson sister-shaped cookies to bring in thetheme. The witches’ hats and broomstick are from Party City.
The Rae Dunn Halloween bowls are stacked to create a tiered look filled with pieces of Halloween candy.
We added a pair of skeleton hands in the top bowl for extra Halloween fun.

If you’re planning a watch party this weekend, this would be a fun idea to set up as a snack station.
We created this set-up outside for an outdoor watch party, but it will also work indoors.
